Lasting Life Love Letters 2016



I have never experienced such rawness of emotion and energy palpable in the room that night, as guest readers shared love letters written through time, personal and otherwise, reflecting grief, passion, belief, fear, anger, sorrow, gratefulness and kindness beyond. The evening was all about true love, one path one journey and what love means to each and every one of us and on this occasion the message was in support of “Lasting Life the Simon MacCorkindale Legacy”

Planning this night and the launch of “Lasting Life Love Letters” in the United Kingdom, as anyone would know was a far-reaching climb and at the top to exceed all expectations, meant everything.

My thanks to all those who helped along the way to make this vision a reality, it’s just the beginning of a plan for future fundraising that I believe will travel the world over.

Hello – 12th September 2016



AS SHE EMBRACES A BRIGHT NEW FUTURE SUSAN GEORGE OPENS HER HEART ABOUT MOVING ON AND THE EXCITING CHANGES IN HER LIFE

Looking every inch the lady of the manor as she poses against the historic backdrop of Maunsel House, a stunning medieval mansion in Somerset, time seems to have stood still for the ever youthful Susan George.

Yet the actress is experiencing monumental changes in her personal and professional life right now -changes she talks about for the first time in this exclusive interview with HELLO!.

“I’ve turned a massive corner,” she says. “I feel incredibly excited, which I never thought I’d feel again. There’s so much more to do in my lifetime and still so much to fulfill.”

 

HOME SWEET HOME

Not only is Susan embracing a renaissance in her film and TV career, preparing for a one-woman stage show and completing her candid autobiography, but she is also considering a move from the wilds of Exmoor and parting with many of her Georgian Arabian horses, part of the equestrian breeding enterprise she has devoted more than two decades to.

It is all, she says, exactly what her husband, actor Simon MacCorkindale, who died of cancer at 58 in 2010, would have wanted.

Lasting Life – Charity Dinner



Lasting Life pebbleLast night I was honoured to be invited to the charity dinner to celebrate the launch of Lasting Life The Simon MacCorkindale Legacy.  Although I was somewhat nervous, everyone was there to celebrate Simon, raise awareness for the charity and to look to the future.  It’s always good to hear lot of wonderful things about Simon, he touched many lives in different ways.

The night was rather emotional, but you could feel the love in the room for Simon and Susan as well.  There was also lots of fun and some singing and dancing.  It was very well organised and perfect way to celebrate the start of this new adventure.

We were given a pebble with a carved heart representing the stacked pebbles in the Lasting Life logo.

For me personally it was the best possible way to start off our year of Simon.  My year just started a day early.

Thank you, Susan, for the invite

6680_Simon_MacCorkingdale

In a couple of weeks The Simon MacCorkindale Fan Page celebrates its 10th birthday, now I don’t have much new to offer, however, I thought it would be good to do a bit of a retrospective of Simon’s career.

So starting the 17th of April we will look at what Simon has done on that day in previous years. This will cover almost everything Simon has been in however there are something’s I’ve not been able to find a date for.

So for our 10th Birthday I’m (hopefully) bringing you a year of Simon, this will be a challenge for me as well so hopefully I can live up to it.

Please see our Twitter and Facebook pages to keep up with the posts as we go through each day, and you will shortly be able to see all the years posts here.

What our year will look like, click for a bigger image.  Some very full days and some empty ones:

My late husband Simon would have been so proud.

SMCFP Tribute



Passionate, Eternal Optimist, Driven Achiever

After hearing so many wonderful things about Simon the other day, and the fact I’ve been meaning to write something like this down for a while, I figure it’s now or never.


A few words about Simon: ‘Passionate, Eternal Optimist, Driven Achiever’.

These are the words Simon choose to describe himself in our ‘Meet a Member‘ questions a few years ago.  I don’t think I know anyone who would disagree with any of these words.

For me Simon always came across as a decent guy, kind and caring and it was these characteristics that made me a fan of Simon and his work, the fact he was damned good looking was an added bonus.

I’ve always believed you can tell a lot about a person about what others think of them or what they think of others.  I remember talking to Simon in a theater and there was an old man with severe hunch behind me, Simon suddenly said ‘oh my god that poor man’, I’d never seen anyone look so concerned and it was for someone he didn’t even know.  I also never heard Simon say a bad word about anyone.

From a fans viewpoint Simon is an excellent role model, honest, hard-working and happily married for over 20 years.  Mimicking is the highest form of adoration and if more people were like Simon then the world would be a better place for everyone.

I always felt I knew a different Simon to his friends and family, I felt I only really knew the guy off the telly (Harry, Peter, Jonathan, Greg) although there were times where you could see Simon himself in interviews and in person.  Even if it was just a minute Simon tried to give time to his fans, by having photo’s taken, signing autographs or just by talking with a fan.  He always had a way of making you feel relaxed and he would try to talk to everyone waiting for him outside a stage door and make them feel important.

I miss Simon, but in someway I know that part of the person I knew I can never forget as all I have to do it dig out a DVD and there he is, smiling, laughing and joking.  I also know that in decades from now probably around Christmas or Easter I’ll turn on a TV and there will be a 25 year old Simon on my TV in Death on the Nile and all the memories, if they’re not still at the front of my mind, will come pouring back.   I don’t think I’ll ever be a fan of anyone the same way I am of Simon, he is someone I’ll never ever forgot, and I’m glad I got a chance to know him.

SMCFP – Simon MacCorkindale’s Memorial



A memorial for Simon was held today at the Actors Church, St Paul’s in Covent Gardens. I was honoured to be invited and able to attend to represent Simon’s fans.

It was a very moving service with everyone in agreement at how approachable, kind, caring, hard-working and passionate Simon was and how he adored Susan.

A very fitting tribute to Simon.

Recent interview with Susan

I met my Simon for the very first time at a charity benefit and we became the best of friends for years after. So I married my soul mate and hand through life. He was a stunning-looking man, but the true essence of Simon was his heart, acres wide and full of jewels.

Daily Mail, Weekend – 9th March 2013



Susan speaks again about loosing Simon and how she is coping with the loss

Everywhere around the house there are framed photos of her and Simon entwined in each other’s arms.

‘I feel as if it were only yesterday that he and I were sitting here together,’ she says. She stops and turns her head to gaze out of the window as her large blue eyes start to fill with tears.

Then, recovering her composure, she continues to talk about the loss of the love of her life. ‘I know Simon lives on with me in everything I do. I also know he’d never want it to be too much for me, because he had so much belief in me. Now my whole  purpose in life is to follow the dream  we both had. A lot of people expected  I wouldn’t carry on with the horses  after what happened. But I couldn’t stop.’

Horse of the Year Show Magazine – 4th-9th Oct 2011



Susan George’s tribute to Simon MacCorkindale

Personally 2011 has been unequivocally, the saddest one of my life, as last October, my beloved husband, Simon MacCorkindale, lost his five-year battle with cancer. Many of you will remember him for his remarkable portrayal of Surgeon Harry Harper, in the long-running series, Casualty, but alongside his acting career, he shared my passion and worked tirelessly and tenaciously to build and promote our Arabian Stud farm and we never once stopped believing.

Saga – August 2011



The Love I Lost

Susan George, who made her name as a sex siren in Straw Dogs, lost her husband, actor Simon MacCorkindale to cancer last year. Here she shares her advice on dealing with widowhood, and explains why she’s ready to start living dangerously again

THERE IS A NOTICE STUCK TO THE FRIDGE DOOR in the kitchen of Susan George’s rambling Exmoor farmhouse. From memory, it is the only thing on any surface in an otherwise immaculate room. Handwritten in capitals, it instructs: ‘Drink a glass of water every hour. Essential’ I mention it and Susan’s huge, dark eyes fill with tears. ‘I put that there to remind Simon’ she says. ‘And I will never take it down’ Simon is Simon MacCorkindale, her late husband. An internationally acclaimed actor, best known latterly for his long-standing role as consultant Harry Harper in BBC One’s Casualty, he died in her arms of cancer last year. He and Susan had been married for 26 years – he was admitted to the London Clinic for the last time straight from the luxury hotel room he had booked as a surprise for their wedding anniversary.
